The teaching of mathematics at Great Coates is planned around the National Curriculum 2014 and focuses on mastery and fluency. The long term plan specifies which strands of mathematics, e.g. calculation, place value, measurement, will be taught at which point in the year and when these will be revisited. Objectives are identified in a medium term plan which also pinpoints opportunities for mastery and application of skills. Short term plans will show that problem-solving is being incorporated in to each unit by the teacher. Problem solving will be shown through reasoning, communication and enquiry based problems as well as worded problems. Pupils attainment is assessed through regular short tests. Maths is also applied in other areas of the curriculum e.g. science, geography.
